Los Angeles, September 20, 2011 – New York Times Bestselling author Michael Scott is delighted to be working with Lawless Entertainment to be Co-Production Consultants on his new television series, “Gyrl.”
Gyrl is the story of Mac, a singer who has a cult following on Facebook, Google+, MySpace and Twitter, and has just broken through on the Indie charts, poised to break through into the mainstream. She sometimes shows up on late night TV, a slender, shorthaired girl lost behind a guitar, usually alone, occasionally with a drummer or keyboard player. And while her material might not be original – she does covers – her smoky voice gives the classics a timeless interpretation.
She is also a Gyrl, a werewolf warrior of the Clan Alta, one of the most ancient Were Clans in the Celtic World, able to trace its lineage back to the First Race, who ruled the world before Man. This series will follow Mac as she travels through Europe performing, while chasing the Beast Master, a renegade Were-Lord who is bent on enslaving the human race.
And if she fails, the human race is doomed.
Gyrl is available for television production, distribution, and ancillary rights exploitation. Lawless Entertainment is currently seeking international co-production and distribution partners for this series.
“I was truly inspired by Lawless Entertainment’s vision for this project,” says Michael Scott.
“I am honored and thrilled to be working with such a prolific and well-respected author as Michael Scott and Gyrl promises to be a brilliant international series,” says Cathy Malatesta, President of Lawless Entertainment.
